that we can implement? i think that's the big challenge. by having the consultant on now, we are in very good shape. they will be with us in the early planning. i can picture us coming back to you in about a year-and-a-half with the program, with the schedule of the budget, and the scope, and possibly some modifications will be looking for in the levels of service. maybe going to the next level with things like energy recovery. hopefully that answers your question. commissioner moran: yes. you touched on the nature of the partnership over an extended period of time and the ability to not bid on other work. that has come out of some discussions on how we make sure they are not in any way compromised in their ability to give us the best advice that they can. i think that has been structured well. i appreciate your work. >> we bent over backwards. all the lessons learned and then some. i really have to compliment harlan and the contracts group. a lot of work went into this and a lot of effort by city staff to get to this point. there are a lot of people from waste water enterprise here toda
, the art commission dollars go throughout the service area. there will be a big impact here. there are other capital works on going. from yosemite to santa clara county, for the purposes of making sure that there is clarity on that. we could make it more specific on community invasion, so that people know where resources are telling without it getting to stuff not moving. >> that makes sense and i just want to make sure, first of all whether that mou should come back to us before it is finally signed, and whether or not we want something in their that provides dollar amounts around specific projects. maybe there is a five million- dollar art project, perhaps coming before this commission to be responsible for significant dollars. it seems that, because the positions have been raised, it would be another opportunity for public input before it is finalized. >> great. >> i do not know if that makes -- >> the resolution directs us into investments for public art and gives direction to the general manager to give the work to sign the mou. >> but there is no problem with continuin
in the public arts arena. next you the big peace sign commemorating the anniversary of the peace sign. as another example of p.u.c.- supported art. the next is a picture of our new headquarters. the relationship we have had with the arts commission -- if either goes on to public facilities and buildings, or is used for other public art. with their headquarters, it's an opportunity to put some amazing public art pieces on the p.u.c. building. next slide. while the public art pieces that have been supported have gotten national and international recognition, there's a lot of interest within the p.u.c. staff and the commission to better align the arts dollars. as a staff, we've been working for the past several months to develop guiding principles that would realize how the arts and richmond dollars get better spent. the criteria and principals are listed on this slide. the artwork, would have a nexus to the p.u.c. functions. the second principle is around making in alignment with our community benefits policy. that policy looks for us to be a good neighbor in places. we would love to se
of the i.m.f. was arrested for doing some untorrid things in a big hotel. i found it ironic last night that eliot spitzer was interviewing people talking about these sorts of activities, and that cycle is going on and on. if you want to play a drinking game, you know, who wants to take bets of when we're going to have the first appearance of gloria allred? it's inevitable. i'm getting off the point a little bit here. but at some point i think it was around the time of the o.j. case where you had this confluence of a big public figure, it was a juicy trial, and cable news was just becoming a force. it changed the environment in which we operate, at least criminal system operates. because it's not just cases anymore, it's entertainment. it's a whole media frenzy on big cases. and i don't think that's a very good thing, but that is the environment in which we operate. and lawyers have to deal with that now. >> a very good point. we have some questions from the audience. i'm going to ask the first one for paulette. in taking tony's essence, who he is as a trial lawyer, how does you tell th

] >> barry -- last speaker card. >> good afternoon. i think you guys made a big mistake tabling all the taxi items for today and trying been meager increase and service improvements, while you have refused to look at the improvements that would make all the caps available in the city under iclone. why does everything have to be tied to making the mca money -- mta money? a lot of the people who are complaining are not taking advantage of these town halls and try to disrupt constructive discussion. so, i think this demonstration was important.

downzoned the entire soma. big problem and mistake that the time. we've seen how tragic that mistake was. the second one was limiting this legislation only to live music. now, i understand why it is, but my office is downtown next to macy's. what i notice is macy's all the time has d.j.'s, diesel store has d.j.'s, my little neighborhood dry cleaner on seventh has d.j.'s for their kids. this is part of the youth culture. and why don't we tax them? why don't we get some money from macy's that sn they're not going to pay $1,500 but they'll pay $400. also if i'm wrong in this i want you to speak up later, but live music has more of a sound impact on the neighborhood than d.j. music. i've seen it in all my clubs. you get a loud band in there, you can't control them, you can't put a limiter on the sound system, i think knowing a lot of restaurants in the market who just basically run rogue in the last 10 years and gotten away with it, let's have d.j. music in this legislation. thank you. president newlin: thank you very much. anybody else like to make public comment? seeing none, the matters w
